Central Kitsap MS/HS

The Central Kitsap Middle School/High School includes a reinforced concrete masonry beam with a 48-foot clear span. Designed by Integrus Architecture of Seattle, WA, it is an example of a large beam that is not seen very often. The project has been featured in several articles, including this one by SMART Dynamics of Masonry: https://www.dynamicsofmasonry.com/WORDPRESS/of-note/.

Guide Specification for Reinforced Concrete Unit Masonry

The following Guide Specifications were written as the framework for a specifications section. The Guide Specifications appear in the CSI three-part format on the left hand pages with explanatory information on the adjacent right hand pages titled NOTES TO SPECIFIER.

Each Guide Specification addresses a particular type or use of masonry construction. They should serve as a guide only and they must be revised and customized for each particular project.

When using any specification the Specifier must consider applicable building codes, local practices and the particular features of the project. The Specifier may find it useful to combine some of these specifications into one specification for smaller projects.
